I lied about something stupif - April 17th 2011, 09:28 PM

I lied to my family about something stupid... I recorded someone on youtube singing on my my phone and my mum heard it, she asked if it was me and I said yeah...
She has been trying to get me to sing but actually I can't sing!
I don't know what to do!!!

Just say something like, "Hey Mom, I think there's been a misunderstanding. I thought you were asking if I made the recording on my phone, and I did. But that wasn't me singing." I'm not a big fan of lying to people, but in this case, it seems like you could easily play this off as a mistake and carry on as usual.

I agree with Robin on this. Tell her about it soon, so it doesn't seem like you've been keeping it from her. And if she asks why you didn't tell her sooner, explain that you felt bad about lying in the first place.

Good luck!

That's a cute story (sorry if my comment is inappropriate).

I second the advice that you need to tell her immediately. What would be the consequences? I don't think it would be a big deal if you told her the truth. If you are close to your mom, just tell her it was a silly joke and you wanted to impress her.

I think that Robin and the others are right in this situation.
Just tell her that there has been a misunderstanding, and that you
heard the question wrong. Then you can just go on like nothing happened.
